Vine: "I also got fans from Australia who came over"

Jay Vine (Alpecin-Deceuninck): "That was a really fun time trial. I guess it was fun because I wasn’t going full gas, but it’s fun to have a special jersey. I also got fans from Australia who came over and watch, for them to be there and notice me is pretty cool. I definitely think that, if we put our minds to it and prepare properly for this sort of events I can go very quick, but it was good to just open legs up again after the rest day and get ready for the rest of the week. We’ve got a sprint tomorrow with Tim [Merlier], it will be a bit tricky though with Sam Bennet out of the race. Bora is obviously not going to control for us, so we are going to try to find some allies and win the sprint with Tim. Then, the rest of the week is pretty hard and I’m looking forward to it."
